This manual describes those features that are available to you as an AD
TOUCH TRACKER 16 operator, and it provides instructions for using these
features. It is up to you, however, to assimilate these features and apply them
in your specific environment.
Every site and situation has different concerns, capabilities, and
vulnerabilities. Understanding how your AD TOUCH TRACKER 16 system
works will enable you to address these concerns and overcome these
vulnerabilities.
Use this manual to learn how to customize your system to meet the needs of
your environment. Most importantly, get comfortable using the system. The
more familiar you are with the system's features and functions, the better you
will be able to secure your site. Once you become comfortable using the
system, you will find it a valuable—and time-saving— security and
management tool.
AD TOUCH TRACKER 16 Features
The AD TOUCH TRACKER 16 system enables you to oversee activity
throughout your facility as it happens. This powerful overview allows you to
document activity and can help you to prevent unwanted activity from taking
place.
The system can include either one or two camera controllers, called TOUCH
TRACKERs. These TOUCH TRACKERs can control cameras simultaneously,
and enable two users to operate the system concurrently. As an alternative, a
single user could control both TOUCH TRACKERs at the same time for twohanded operation.
Features available to AD TOUCH TRACKER 16 operators are:
1-2
•
The ability to manually call up video from individual cameras, one at a
time by using a compatible quad splitter or multiplexer

The system's cameras enable you to monitor activity throughout a facility
from a single location. You can see video from up to 16 cameras. The
AD TOUCH TRACKER 16 system is compatible with programmable and
non-programmable domes, PTZ cameras, and fixed cameras.
•
The TOUCH TRACKER is the device you use to select cameras and
manually control their movement, as well as adjust their zoom, focus,
and iris. The TOUCH TRACKER enables you to perform automated camera
operations and clear system alarms. With the TOUCH TRACKER you can
access the menu to program automated system functions and use the
utilities.
•
If there are two TOUCH TRACKERs installed with your system, you must
configure one as the Main TOUCH TRACKER and the other as the Call
TOUCH TRACKER. The Main TOUCH TRACKER employs all of the
functionality described in this manual. The Call TOUCH TRACKER,
however, has no programming capabilities, and it cannot select a monitor
display format, initiate the Sequence, or clear alarms.
•
The video monitor displays the camera's video. You may have only one
monitor, you may have two monitors, or you may have a separate
monitor dedicated for every camera. If a system contains two monitors,
one is referred to as the Main monitor and the other as the Call monitor.
The Main monitor displays video in a multiplexed format and is
controlled by the Main TOUCH TRACKER. The Call monitor is dedicated
for full-screen view only, and its video is controlled by the Call TOUCH
TRACKER.
•
The Quad Splitter or Multiplexer is the unit that allows video to be
displayed in a multiplexed format. The quad splitter enables you to see
video from up to 4 cameras simultaneously on one monitor. A
multiplexer enables you to see video from up to 16 cameras
simultaneously on one monitor.

QUAD DISPLAY MODE
Although as many as 8 cameras may be connected to your system, only 4
cameras can be displayed at one time. If your system is connected to a dual
page quad splitter, the cameras will be divided into two “pages.” Cameras 1
through 4 appear on page one; cameras 5 through 8 appear on page two. To
switch back and forth between page one and page two, press the Display
button on the Main TOUCH TRACKER. Each time you press the Display
button, you change the monitor display from page one, to page two, to fullscreen display.
Regardless of which display format you choose, you will always have
control over the camera number appearing on the LCD.
Tip: If your system includes only one monitor, press the Display button to
put the monitor in the quad display format. Press the number associated with
an individual camera to call that camera to the full-screen mode (or select
the full-screen display mode via the Display button).

Displaying Video with Multiplexers
Multiplexers allow you to see video from up to 16 cameras at one time. You
can either call up these cameras individually (refer to Chapter 3), or you can
display the cameras in one of the multiplexed modes. Duplex multiplexers
allow you to record up to 16 cameras at one time and display the cameras in
a multiplexed mode simultaneously. Simplex multiplexers will allow you to
record up to 16 cameras at one time (while viewing cameras full screen) or
display the cameras in a multiplexed mode. In either case, the TOUCH
TRACKER provides for control of the camera number appearing on the LCD.
When cameras are displayed in the multiplexed mode, they can be displayed
in either a 2x2, 3x3, or 4x4 format, depending on which model of
multiplexer is configured for your system. Multiplexers are available in 4camera, 9-camera, and 16-camera models. The camera number always
appears in its respective window on the monitor.
When cameras are displayed in the
2x2 format, you will be able to see
video from 4 cameras on the monitor.
This format is available with 4camera, 9-camera, and 16-camera
multiplexers.
When cameras are displayed in the

How the System Resolves Conflicts in Camera Control
If your system configuration includes two TOUCH TRACKERs, the Main
TOUCH TRACKER will always have priority over the Call TOUCH TRACKER
when the system is in the camera control mode. Whichever camera the Main
operator has selected will be “locked” and the Call operator will not be able
to control it. The Call operator can select that camera and display its video
on the Call monitor; however, he or she will not be able to control that
camera at all.
If the Call operator attempts to control a camera that is currently selected by
the Main operator, the message, “Camera In Use” appears on the Call
TOUCH TRACKER. If the Main operator selects a camera that is currently in
use by the Call operator, the message, “Camera Override” appears on
the Call TOUCH TRACKER. The Main operator secures control of the camera.
The Main operator maintains control over a camera until one of the
following things happens:
•
The Main operator selects a new camera
•
The Main operator enters the menu/programming mode
•
The Main operator initiates the Sequence
•
An alarm comes into the system
•
The selected camera remains idle for 3 minutes
Once the Main operator relinquishes control of a camera for any of the
reasons mentioned above, the message, “Camera Free” appears on the
Call TOUCH TRACKER (if the Call operator has that camera selected).
Selecting a Camera
Each camera has a unique number associated with it. To select a camera, use
the number buttons to enter the camera number, and then press Camera.
The video from that camera appears in the full-screen mode on the monitor,
and the associated camera number appears in the bottom left corner of that
monitor.
3-2
Operator's Manual
If you select a camera via the Main TOUCH TRACKER, its video appears on
the Main monitor. If you select a camera via the Call TOUCH TRACKER, its
video appears on the Call monitor.
Stepping Through the Cameras
The Previous and Next buttons enable you to manually step through all of
the cameras, one at a time. Press the Previous and Next buttons to step
backward and forward, one camera at a time, through all of the cameras
configured for your system.
Controlling a Camera's Pan and Tilt
Once you have selected a camera, you can manually control the movement of
that camera. Pan is the side to side movement of the camera; tilt is the up and
down movement of the camera.
You use the Tracker Ball to control the camera's pan and tilt. To pan the
camera, move the Tracker Ball left and right; to tilt the camera, move the
Tracker Ball toward you or away from you.
You can simultaneously pan and tilt the camera for diagonal movement. For
example, move the Tracker Ball diagonally up and to the right; this moves
the camera up and to the right.
The speed of the camera movement is directly proportional to how far you
move the Tracker Ball from its center position. If you move the Tracker Ball
slightly to the right, the camera will pan slowly to the right. As you move the
Tracker Ball farther to the right, the camera's panning speed will increase
until it reaches its maximum speed. This variable speed operation applies to
programmable domes only. Non-programmable domes provide two speeds:
normal and fast.
Controlling Cameras and Their Outputs
3-3
Controlling Zoom and Focus
Once you have selected a camera, you can control the zoom and focus
settings of that camera.
When the TOUCH TRACKER is initially installed, the Zoom button is on the
left side of the Tracker Ball and the Focus button is on the right side of the
Tracker Ball. To make operation more flexible, you can switch the
functionality of these buttons so that the Zoom button is on the right side
and the Focus button is on the left side. The location of these buttons is a
matter of personal preference. For instructions on switching the Zoom and
Focus buttons, refer to Chapter 5, “TOUCH TRACKER Utilities.”
Zooming In and Out
Zoom refers to the action of “moving” closer to or farther away from an
object. To zoom the camera in, press the Zoom button forward. Press the
Zoom button in the opposite direction to zoom out. If you quickly press and
release the button, there will be only a slight visible change on the monitor.
The longer you press the Zoom button, the more noticeable will be the
response.
Focusing the Camera
Focus refers to the action of adjusting the clarity of the display on the
monitor. To focus on the object or scene displayed on the monitor, press the
Focus button. You can either focus near (if the object is closer than the
current focus setting) or far (if the object is farther away than the current
focus setting). You will see the picture on the monitor become either sharper
and clearer or fuzzier and less clear. Like the Zoom button, the Focus
button reacts based on how long you hold it down; the longer you hold the
button down, the more noticeable will be the response.
Controlling the Iris
Normally, the brightness and darkness of the picture are controlled by the
camera's auto gain function and the auto/manual iris function. However,
there may be times when you would like to see the picture on the monitor be
3-4
Operator's Manual
even darker or lighter. There are buttons on the keypad that enable you to
control the camera's iris, which is the device that regulates the brightness or
darkness of the picture.
To make the picture brighter, press the Iris Open button. To make the
picture darker, press the Iris Close button.
To return the iris to its default setting, press both iris buttons simultaneously.
“Flipping” the SpeedDome
You can flip a SpeedDome 180° in the opposite direction. The SpeedDome
flip is especially useful when you are tracking a subject who walks directly
under the SpeedDome and then continues walking on the other side of the
SpeedDome.
To flip the currently selected SpeedDome, press the Flip button on the
keypad. When you flip a SpeedDome, the LCD displays the following
message:
Cam x
Flip Dome
Running the “Apple Peel” Pattern
You can instruct a SpeedDome to run the Apple Peel pattern. This is a
default pattern that all SpeedDomes can run without any user programming.
The Apple Peel pattern consists of three
revolutions of camera panning, with tilt starting at
the ceiling. Each revolution tilts down
approximately 30°. The Apple Peel pattern
provides you with a complete view of the area.
Apple Peel Pattern
Controlling Cameras and Their Outputs
3-5
The following procedure describes how to initiate the Apple Peel pattern.
1. Use the number buttons to enter the number of the SpeedDome for which
you want to initiate the Apple Peel pattern (for example, camera 2). Then
press the Camera button.
2. Press the Peel button.
The LCD displays the following message:
Cam 2
Apple Peel Patn
The Apple Peel pattern will repeat itself indefinitely until you issue a camera
command (pan, tilt, zoom, focus, or iris) to the dome running the pattern.
Displaying Quick Views
IMPORTANT
The SpeedDome Ultra III and newer domes support up to 96 views. Older
domes support up to 4 views. The TOUCH TRACKER beeps when you attempt
to call up a view numbered higher than 4 on domes older than the
SpeedDome Ultra III.
A Quick View enables you to instantaneously call up a specific view from a
programmable dome, regardless of where that dome is currently pointing. A
Quick View is useful when you want to look at a particular item or area
immediately. You may not want to manually pan and tilt the camera to the
specific area, and then zoom and focus.
You can define your own Quick Views to support your specific needs. Refer
to Chapter 4, “Defining Automatic System Functions,” for procedures on
defining Quick Views.
3-6
Operator's Manual
The View button on the keypad allows you to call up the Quick Views that
you have defined for your cameras. Depending on the type of dome, either 4
or 96 Quick Views may be defined.
If a list has been compiled for your facility, you can refer to the List of Quick
Views in Appendix A to determine which Quick Views are available for
which domes.
The following procedure describes how to display a Quick View.
1. Use the number buttons to enter the number of the camera whose Quick
View you want to display, for example, camera 12. Then press the
Camera button.
2. Use the number buttons to enter the number of the Quick View you want
to display, and then press the View button.
If the Quick View exists for the selected camera, the camera will
immediately point to the pre-defined Quick View, and then zoom and
focus automatically. The following message appears on the LCD:
Cam 12
View
If you tried to call up a Quick View for a non-programmable dome, or if
you entered an invalid View number (any number greater than 96), the
TOUCH TRACKER beeps.
Controlling Cameras and Their Outputs
3-7
Running Patterns
IMPORTANT
The SpeedDome LT supports a feature called “Auto Pan” that allows you to
program a smooth side-to-side camera movement for an area. When
programmed, this feature is accessed using Pattern 1 for the dome. Please
refer to the section in Chapter 4 titled “SpeedDome LT Auto Pan
Programming,” for additional information about this feature.
A Pattern is a sequential series of pan, tilt, zoom, and focus movements from
a single camera. You “teach” the camera a combination of these movements.
Then when you run the Pattern, the camera automatically repeats the
movements you taught it.
You can define your own Patterns to support your specific needs. Refer to
Chapter 4, “Defining Automatic System Functions,” for procedures on
defining Patterns.
When you run a Pattern, you can specify to run the Pattern once, or you can
specify to run the Pattern repeatedly until you stop it manually. Both
methods are described here.
If a list has been compiled for your facility, you can refer to the List of
Patterns in Appendix A to determine which Patterns are available for which
domes.
The following procedure describes how to run a Pattern. Most programmable
domes support up to three Patterns defined for it. The SpeedDome LT
supports programming the Auto Pan feature for Pattern 1; it does not support
programming any additional patterns.
1. Use the number buttons to enter the number of the camera whose Pattern
you want to run, for example, camera 8. Then press the Camera button.
3-8
Operator's Manual
2. Use the number buttons to enter the number of the Pattern you want to
run. Then press the Pattern button (if you want the Pattern to run one
time and then stop), or press the Repeat Pattern button (if you want
the Pattern to repeat indefinitely until you stop it).
If that Pattern exists for that camera, the Pattern will automatically begin
running. If that Pattern does not exist for that camera, the camera will
run the default Apple Peel pattern.
Depending on whether this is a Pattern that will run once or a repeating
Pattern, one of the following messages appears on the LCD:
Cam 8
Run Pattern
-or-
Cam 8
Repeat Pattern
If you instructed the Pattern to run through one time, the following
message appears on the LCD once the Pattern is complete:
Cam 8
Pattern Done
If you instructed the Pattern to repeat itself, the Pattern will continue
running until you manually issue a camera command (pan, tilt, zoom,
focus, or iris) to the dome running the Pattern.
If you tried to run a Pattern for a non-programmable dome, or if you
entered an invalid Pattern number (any number greater than 3), the
TOUCH TRACKER beeps.
Controlling Cameras and Their Outputs
3-9
Running the Sequence
Tip: The Sequence is started from the Main TOUCH TRACKER only.
The Sequence is a collection of Quick Views and Patterns that have been
defined for your system's cameras. In the Sequence you can also include
fixed shots from any camera. The Sequence can include up to 16 of these
Quick Views, Patterns, and fixed shots; these are referred to as the “events”
of the Sequence. When the Sequence is running, these events are
automatically displayed, one after the other, on the Main monitor. Each event
remains on the monitor for a specific duration time (from 1 to 90 seconds);
the duration time can be different for each event.
You can define the Sequence that most adequately supports your specific
needs. Refer to Chapter 4, “Defining Automatic System Functions,” for
procedures on defining the Sequence.
To run the Sequence, press the Seq button on the Main TOUCH TRACKER.
The Sequence automatically begins running and the information shown here
appears on the LCD.
This is the camera whose
Quick View, Pattern or fixed
shot appears on the
monitor.
This is the event number
assigned to this Quick View,
Pattern, or fixed shot in the
Sequence.

Operator's Manual
As the Sequence is running, the LCD indicates which camera's video is
displayed, which event in the Sequence is currently active, and how many
seconds remain in that event's duration time.
The Sequence will repeat itself indefinitely until you press either the Seq
button or the Clear button on the Main TOUCH TRACKER.
Controlling Dome Outputs
The programmable domes at your facility can have outputs connected to
them. Outputs are devices such as lights, audible alarms, or door locks, that
can be controlled via the TOUCH TRACKER when they are connected to a
dome. Each dome can have up to four outputs connected to it. You can
control the state of any output that is connected to the currently selected
dome.
Because up to 64 outputs can be configured at a single facility, it might be
useful to post the List of Inputs and Outputs, which is included in Appendix
A, next to the TOUCH TRACKER. This chart lists which output devices are
connected to which domes at your facility. Posting such a list next to the
TOUCH TRACKER enables operators to easily determine what outputs are
available, and which buttons correspond to those outputs.
The following procedure describes how to turn a dome output on and off.
The on and off states for each dome output are also included on the List of
Inputs and Outputs. You must know the number of the dome (1 – 16) that the
output is connected to, and the output number (1– 4) before you begin this
procedure.
1. Refer to your List of Inputs and Outputs to determine which output you
want to turn on or off.
2. Use the number buttons to enter the number of the camera whose output
state you want to toggle, for example, camera 13. Then press Camera.
3. Use the number buttons to enter the number of the output you want to
control. Then press the Output On button (if you want to turn the
output on), or press the Output Off button (if you want to turn the
Controlling Cameras and Their Outputs
3-11
output off). The List of Inputs and Outputs provides the on and off states
for each output.
Depending on whether you turned the output on or off in the previous
step, the LCD displays one of the following messages:
Cam 13
Output On
-or- Cam 13
Output Off
If you entered an invalid output number (any number greater than 4 or an
output that does not exist) the TOUCH TRACKER beeps.
Clearing System Alarms
Tip: Alarms can be cleared from the Main TOUCH TRACKER only.
Your system can be configured to handle up to 64 different alarms. When an
alarm is triggered, it takes precedence over whatever you are doing on the
Main monitor and Main TOUCH TRACKER at the time. For example, if you
are in the programming mode when an alarm comes in, the alarm information
replaces the programming information on the LCD. If you are running the
Sequence when an alarm comes in, the alarm information will replace the
Sequence information on the LCD. In addition, the video information for the
alarm will replace the video information from the Sequence on the Main
monitor.
The Call monitor and Call TOUCH TRACKER remain unaffected by incoming
alarms.
Each alarm can be configured to automatically call up video and initiate an
output. For example, when an alarm is triggered, it can automatically run a
specific Pattern and set off an audible alarm. In addition, whenever an alarm
is triggered, the TOUCH TRACKER will beep, signaling an active alarm. The
TOUCH TRACKER will continue to beep intermittently until the alarm is
cleared.
3-12
Operator's Manual
There can be up to four alarms active at one time. If more than four alarms
are active at one time, and none of them have been cleared, the oldest alarm
gets “pushed out” of the queue.
The following illustration is an example of what the LCD looks like when
alarms are active.
This is the camera whose
video appears on the
monitor during the alarm.
This indicates how many
alarms are currently
active.
Cam 3
Alarm2
Src Cam 5 Inp3
This is the number associated
with the specific input that
triggered the alarm, and the
number of the Camera to which
that input is connected.
The AD TOUCH TRACKER 16 system is set, by default, to automatically clear
alarms after 60 seconds. No action is required by the operator to clear alarms
as long the automatic alarm acknowledgment is enabled. However, alarms
can always be cleared by pressing the Clear button on the Main TOUCH
TRACKER.
Press the Clear button on the Main TOUCH TRACKER To manually clear the
alarm whose information appears on the LCD and whose video appears on
the Main monitor. When you clear an alarm, its associated output returns to
its original state, and its information is cleared from the LCD. Continue to
press the Clear button until all active alarms have been cleared.
Controlling Cameras and Their Outputs
3-13
The TOUCH TRACKER stops beeping once all active alarms have been
cleared. If the TOUCH TRACKER was running the Sequence before the alarm
came in, it will restart the Sequence from the beginning. If you were in the
middle of programming when the alarm came in, you will have to resume
programming from the beginning.

Defining a Quick View
IMPORTANT
The SpeedDome Ultra III and newer domes support up to 96 views. Older
programmable domes support up to 4 views. The TOUCH TRACKER beeps
when you attempt to program a view numbered higher than 4 on domes older
than the SpeedDome Ultra III.
A Quick View automatically and instantaneously calls up a view from a
programmable dome, regardless of where that dome is currently pointing.
You can define your own Quick Views to support your specific needs.
Depending on the type of dome, either 4 or 96 views may be defined.
Tip: You must use the Main TOUCH TRACKER to define Quick Views.
If you make a mistake during programming or you no longer want to
program the Quick View, press the Menu or the Clear button at any time to
cancel programming. The TOUCH TRACKER returns to the camera control
mode.
The following procedure describes how to define a Quick View.
1. Using the number buttons, enter the number of the programmable camera
for which you are defining this Quick View (for example, camera 7).
Then press the Camera button.
2. Pan and tilt the camera so that it is pointing at the view you want to
define. Then zoom and focus the camera accordingly.
3. When you have the perfect picture displayed on the monitor, press the
Menu button.

If you press an invalid number (any number greater than 96), the TOUCH
TRACKER beeps, and the system will not save the Quick View. If this
happens, simply press a valid number and the Quick View will be saved.
The TOUCH TRACKER automatically returns to the camera control mode.
Defining Automatic System Functions
4-3
In the List of Quick Views (found in Appendix A of this manual), make a
record of the Quick View you just defined, including a brief description of
what the Quick View is “looking at.”
Tip: A short cut method for defining Quick Views is available. Press Menu,
View, the Quick View number, and Zoom or Focus to create a Quick
View of the current scene.
Defining a Pattern
You can define your own Patterns to support your specific needs.
You can program up to three Patterns per programmable dome. The length
and complexity of a Pattern are restricted by two variables:
•
•
Number of camera commands
Time
Each time you move the camera in any direction, zoom in or out, focus near
or far, or adjust the iris, you have issued camera commands to the camera.
The three Patterns for a dome can collectively consist of up to 98 camera
commands. As you program a Pattern, the number of camera commands
remaining for that camera appears on the TOUCH TRACKER LCD.
There is also a time constraint on Patterns. A single Pattern cannot have a
duration longer than approximately 6 minutes and 50 seconds. Even if a
Pattern has only two camera commands in it, the Pattern will stop recording
once its duration time has elapsed.
Patterns are programmed in real-time. This means that the camera is
remembering every programming command you make at the actual speed
you issue the commands. For example, if you let the camera sit still for 20
seconds during programming, that is exactly what the camera will do each
time that Pattern is called up in the future. The 20 seconds of “non-motion
time” is part of the Pattern.
4-4
Operator's Manual
Tip: You must use the Main TOUCH TRACKER to define Patterns.
The SpeedDome LT does not support Pattern programming. Refer to the
section in this chapter titled “SpeedDome LT Auto Pan Programming” for
information about setting the Auto Pan feature.
The following procedure describes how to define a Pattern.
1. Using the number buttons, enter the number of the programmable camera
for which you are defining the Pattern (for example, camera 3). Then
press the Camera button.
2. Pan and tilt the camera to the starting point of the Pattern, and then zoom
and focus the camera accordingly.

7. The Pattern is now being recorded in real-time. If you let the camera sit
still at this point, that non-motion time will be recorded in the Pattern.
If you pressed an invalid number (any number greater than 3), the
TOUCH TRACKER will beep and the system will not allow you to program
the Pattern. If this happens, simply press a valid number and continue
with this procedure.
8. Move the camera around and create a logical, usable Pattern. Remember,
the three Patterns for this camera can collectively incorporate up to 98
camera commands, and each Pattern can be up to 6 minutes and 50
4-6
Operator's Manual
seconds long. The number of commands remaining for this camera
appears on the LCD as you program the Pattern.
9. When you complete programming the Pattern, press the Next button.
The following message appears on the LCD:
Cam 3
Pattern Saved
The TOUCH TRACKER automatically returns to the camera control mode.
In the List of Patterns (in Appendix A of this manual), make a record of the
Pattern you just defined, including a brief description of the Pattern.
Tip: A shortcut method is available for defining Patterns. Press Menu,
Pattern, and the Pattern number. Move the camera in the desired pattern,
then press Next when finished.
Understanding Sequence Programming
You can define a Sequence that incorporates up to 16 events. An event is a
Quick View or Pattern that you have already defined; an event can also be a
fixed shot. The events that you include in the Sequence can be defined for
any camera. For each event, you designate a duration time, which indicates
how long that event will remain on the monitor before the Sequence switches
to the next event.
Before you begin defining the Sequence, you should have a clear
understanding what you want to include in the Sequence. Refer to the lists
that you compiled (in Appendix A) of the available Quick Views and
Patterns. Make sure you can answer the following questions:
•
Which Quick Views, Patterns, and fixed shots will you include in the
Sequence?
Defining Automatic System Functions
4-7
•
What are the numbers that were assigned to those Quick Views and
Patterns when they were defined?
•
What are the camera numbers that the Quick Views and Patterns were
defined on? What are the camera numbers whose fixed shots you want to
include?
It is recommended that you to fill out the Setup Sequence Worksheet in
Appendix A before you begin setting up the Sequence. On the Setup
Sequence Worksheet you can list all of the events—along with their
numbers, the cameras on which they were defined, and their duration
times—to be included in the Sequence. You can then refer to this worksheet
when you are actually setting up the Sequence.
Sequence Programming Display
Before you begin programming the Sequence, you should have a basic
understanding of the fields shown during Sequence programming.
The following illustration provides an overview of the fields:

Events in a Sequence are divided into four columns:
column 1
column 2
column 3
4-8
“Evt” is the number of the event (1 through 16) within
the Sequence; this number determines which event
comes first, second, third, etc.
“Cam” is the camera number on which the event was
defined.
“Act” is the type of event (Quick View, Pattern, or
fixed shot), and number assigned to that event when it
was originally defined (1 through 96 for Views; 1
through 3 for Patterns; blank for fixed shots).
Operator's Manual
column 4
“Dur” is the amount of time, in seconds, that the event
will remain on the monitor before the Sequence
switches to the next event. This is the event's duration
time. The maximum duration time is 90 seconds.
When the fields in an event have dashes in them instead of values, the event
is not defined. Leaving an event undefined instructs the Sequence to skip that
event.
When the TOUCH TRACKER is in the menu/programming mode, the Tracker
Ball enables you to move the cursor around on the LCD. The blinking square
on the LCD indicates the cursor's location. Move the Tracker Ball up and
down to move the cursor from event to event. Move the Tracker Ball left and
right to move the cursor among the fields within an event.
When the define Sequence LCD is first displayed, the cursor is in the Cam
field. This is where you indicate on which camera the first event to be
included in the Sequence was defined.
If the Sequence has not been defined, or if the first event in the Sequence
was not defined, the LCD looks like this:
Evt Cam Act Dur
01
-- View- --
If someone has already set up the Sequence, and the first event has been
defined, the information for the first event in the Sequence appears on the
LCD. For example:
Evt Cam Act Dur
01
7 View2 10
In the sample Sequence LCD (above), the first event is Quick View 2,
defined on camera 7, and its duration time is 10 seconds.

3. Use the Tracker Ball to scroll to the event you want to define.
4. In the Cam field, indicate the camera on which this event was defined, or
the camera whose fixed shot you want to include. Use the number
buttons to enter the camera number.
4-10
Operator's Manual
5. In the Act field, indicate the type of Action (Quick View, Pattern, or
fixed shot) you are specifying for this event. Press View to indicate a
Quick View or a fixed shot; press Pattern to indicate a Pattern.
6. Use the number buttons on the keypad to designate the specific number
of this Quick View or Pattern. This number was assigned to the Quick
View or Pattern when it was initially defined. If you want the Action to
be a fixed shot, press the Clear button.
7. In the Dur field, use the number buttons to enter the duration time, in
seconds, for this event. The maximum duration time is 90 seconds. The
duration time must be entered as two digits. For example, enter “05” for
5 seconds.
8. Use the Tracker Ball to scroll to the next event, and repeat Steps 4
through 7 for each event you want to include in this Sequence. You can
define up to 16 events. You can leave any event undefined by pressing
the Clear button when the cursor is in the Cam field for that event.
9. When you complete defining the Sequence, press the Menu button. This
returns the TOUCH TRACKER to the camera control mode.
Tip: A shortcut method for defining the Sequence is available. Press Menu,
then Seq to start sequence programming. Use the Tracker Ball to scroll to
the appropriate event number. Follow steps 4–9 above to assign the camera,
action, and duration to each event in the sequence.
Setting Up System Alarms
You can define up to 64 different alarms that can be triggered by the inputs
connected to domes at your facility. An alarm is triggered when one of these
inputs changes from its normal state to its abnormal state. For example, if the
input is a smoke detector, its normal state would be “not detecting smoke.”
However, when the smoke detector detects smoke, it changes to its abnormal
Defining Automatic System Functions
4-11
state, and this triggers an alarm. (Refer to your List of Inputs and Outputs in
Appendix A to determine the normal and abnormal state for each input.)
When an alarm is triggered, it can automatically call up one video action
(either a Quick View, a Pattern, or a fixed shot) and initiate one output. This
video action must have been defined for the same dome that the output is
connected to, and vice versa. Refer to your List of Inputs and Outputs in
Appendix A to determine which outputs are connected to which domes.
Refer to your List of Quick Views and List of Patterns in Appendix A to
determine which Quick Views and Patterns were defined for which domes.
It might be helpful for you to fill out the Setup Alarms Worksheet in
Appendix A before you begin setting up an alarm. On the Setup Alarms
Worksheet you can calculate which inputs on which domes will trigger
which video action and output, if any. You can then refer to this worksheet
when you are actually setting up an alarm.
Tip: You must use the Main TOUCH TRACKER to set up Alarms.
The following procedure describes how to set up a system alarm.
1. Using the number buttons, enter the number of the camera for which you
are setting up the alarm. Then press the Camera button.
2. Press the Menu button.
The TOUCH TRACKER is now in the menu/programming mode, and the
menu appears:
Calibration
Define Sequence
3. Use the Tracker Ball to scroll through the menu selections until Alarm

4. Press the appropriate button—zoom or focus—to select Alarm
Actions.
The information for that camera's first alarm input appears on the LCD.
When you set up an alarm, you will indicate which Quick View, Pattern,
or fixed shot will be called up when the alarm is triggered. You will also
indicate which output initiates when this alarm is triggered. The video
action and the output must be associated with the same dome.
A sample setup alarm LCD is shown here.
Cam12/1 => Cam7

If an alarm input has not been set up yet, the fields will have dashes in
them. A setup alarm LCD contains the following information:
1

This is the dome and input
that will trigger an alarm
when a change in state is
detected.
This is the dome whose
video appears on the
monitor when the alarm
occurs.

This is the specific Quick View
or Pattern that appears when
the alarm is triggered. If there
is no number in this field, this
indicates a fixed shot.
This is the specific
output that initiates
when the alarm is
triggered.
In this sample alarm, input 1 on camera 12 is the specific input that will
trigger the alarm. The alarm input, for example, could be a motion
detector that triggers an alarm when it senses motion. When this alarm is
triggered, Quick View 96 on camera 7 appears on the monitor. In
addition, output 3 on the same camera initiates automatically. The output
might be, for example, a light that turns on when the alarm is triggered.
Defining Automatic System Functions
4-13
Even though you can only see the information for one alarm input at a
time, each camera can have four alarm inputs.
When the TOUCH TRACKER is in the menu/programming mode, the
Tracker Ball enables you to move the cursor around on the LCD. The
blinking square on the LCD indicates the cursor's location. Move the
Tracker Ball left and right to move the cursor among the fields on the
LCD.
5. When the setup alarm LCD is first displayed, the cursor is in the Cam
field for input 1 of the camera you indicated.
Is this the alarm input that you want to configure? If so, continue with
Step 6 now.
If this is not the alarm input you want to configure, use the Tracker Ball
to scroll through the available inputs until the appropriate input appears
in the input field.
6. In the Cam field, indicate the camera whose Quick View, Pattern, or
fixed shot appears when this alarm is triggered. This is the same camera
whose output initiates when the alarm is triggered. Use the number
buttons on the keypad to enter the camera number.
7. Move the Tracker Ball to the right move the cursor to the next field.
8. Choose one of the following:
4-14
•
Do you want a Quick View to be displayed when this alarm is
triggered? If so, use the number buttons to indicate the specific
Quick View (1 - 96).
•
Do you want a Pattern to be displayed when this alarm is
triggered? If so, press the Pattern button, and then use the
number buttons to indicate the specific Pattern (1 - 3).
•
Do you want a fixed shot to be displayed when this alarm is
triggered? If so, press the View button, but do not enter any
number in this field. When this alarm is triggered, you will see

video of wherever the camera (that you indicated in Step 6) is
currently pointing.
9. Move the Tracker Ball to the right. In the Out field, indicate the specific
output that initiates when this alarm is triggered. Use the number buttons
to enter the number. Remember, this output must be connected to the
camera you assigned in Step 6.
If you do not want an output to be initiated, leave this field blank.
10. Choose one of the following:
•
Do you want to set up another alarm input for this camera? If
so, use the Tracker Ball to scroll through the available inputs
until the appropriate input appears in the input field. Then repeat
Steps 6 through 9.
•
Do you want to set up an alarm for another camera? If so, press
the Next button on the keypad until the appropriate camera
number appears in the Alarm Cam field. Then, repeat Steps 5
through 9.
•
Are you finished setting up alarms for now? If so, press the
Menu button. This returns the TOUCH TRACKER to the camera
control mode.
SpeedDome LT Auto Pan Programming
The Auto Pan is a special feature supported by SpeedDome LT only. It
allows you program a smooth side-to-side camera pan of an area. The
SpeedDome LT does not allow you to program the same types of Patterns
that other domes support. Instead, use Pattern programming to set the Auto
Pan function.
Auto Pan Programming Limitations
Keep the following limitations in mind when programming the SpeedDome
LT Auto Pan feature:
Defining Automatic System Functions
4-15
•
Although it appears to have three Patterns available to program, you
can only program the Auto Pan feature for Pattern 1.
•
Any extraneous movements made during the Auto Pan programming
will be ignored when the programming is complete. Once the end
point of the Auto Pan is set, the result will be a smooth pan between
the start point and the end point of the Auto Pan.
•
Do not attempt to create an Auto Pan that is greater than one
revolution (360º) of the SpeedDome LT. The dome will accept this
pattern during programming; however, it will not work when you
attempt to run the pattern. The starting point and the ending point
must be less than one revolution of the SpeedDome for the Auto Pan
to work properly.
•
If you attempt to program Pattern 2 or 3 as different Auto Pans for
the dome, the system will take you through the motions of the
programming. However, the new Auto Pan will not be saved. Do not
attempt to program more than one Auto Pan per SpeedDome LT.
•
If you need to re-program the Auto Pan for the dome, you must
select the Pattern 1. Selecting another available Pattern number will
not change the previously programmed Auto Pan.
To program the Auto Pan for SpeedDome LT, do the following:
Tip: You must use the Main TOUCH TRACKER to define the Auto Pan for
SpeedDome LT.
1. Using the number buttons, enter the number of the SpeedDome LT for
which you are defining the Auto Pan (for example, camera 3). Then
press the Camera button.
2. Pan and tilt the camera to the starting point of the Pattern, and then zoom
and focus the camera accordingly.

Programming Worksheets
This Appendix contains worksheets that will make the task of programming
your system a great deal easier. There are five different kinds of worksheets
included in this appendix.
•
The List of Quick Views worksheet allows you to keep a record of the
Quick Views you have defined for your facility. This information
includes the Quick View number, the camera number and type, and a
brief description of each Quick View.
•
The List of Patterns worksheet allows you to keep a record of the
Patterns you have defined for your facility. This information includes the
Pattern number, the camera number and type, and a brief description of
each Pattern.
•
The List of Inputs and Outputs worksheet allows you to keep a record of
those inputs and outputs that have been configured at your facility, along
with their associated information.
Note
A-2
•
The Setup Sequence worksheet allows you to determine which Quick
Views, Patterns, and Fixed shots will be included in the Sequence before
you actually begin setting up the Sequence.
•
The Setup Alarms worksheet allows you to calculate all of the
information associated with setting up alarms before you actually begin
defining the alarms.
It is strongly recommended that you make photocopies of the different kinds
of worksheets in this Appendix before you actually begin filling them out. It
is likely that the Sequence and the alarms (and the Quick Views and Patterns
that they are comprised of) will change over time. We have provided only a
minimal number of these worksheets. Make sure you always have extra
copies available.
Operator's Manual
List of Quick Views
We recommend that, as you define Quick Views to meet the needs of your
facility, you then record those Quick Views in this Appendix. That way, you
will have an easy way to access the following information:
•
The approximate location of the domes at your facility
•
Which domes have Quick Views defined for them
•
How many Quick Views have been defined for each dome
•
A brief description of each Quick View
In addition, by recording the Quick Views that you have defined, it will be
easier for you to determine which Quick Views you want to include when
setting up the Sequence and the alarms.
Here is an example of how you might fill out your list of Quick Views:

List of Patterns
We recommend that, as you define Patterns to meet the needs of your
facility, you then record those Patterns in this Appendix. That way, you will
have an easy way to access the following information:
•
the approximate location of the domes at your facility
•
which domes have Patterns defined for them
•
how many Patterns have been defined for each dome
•
a brief description of each Pattern
In addition, if you record the Patterns that you have defined, it will be easier
for you to determine which Patterns you want to include when you set up the
Sequence and the alarms.
Here is an example of how you might fill out your list of Patterns:

programming; however, Pattern 1 is used for programming the auto pan
feature of SpeedDome LT.
Be sure to make a sufficient number of copies of the Pattern worksheet to
document all patterns programmed.

List of Inputs and Outputs
This section lists those inputs and outputs (auxiliaries) that have been
configured at your facility. It contains the following information:
•
which domes have inputs and outputs configured
•
a brief description of the inputs and outputs that have been configured
•
the “normal” and “abnormal” state for each input
• the “on” and “off” state for each output
A list of the configured inputs and outputs will make it easier for you to
toggle the state of the outputs, as described in Chapter 3, “Controlling
Cameras and Their Outputs.” It will also make it easier for you to set up your
system alarms and interpret those alarms when they appear on the LCD.
Here is an example of how to fill out the inputs/outputs list:

Software License Agreement
By using the AD Touch Tracker 16 software, you accept the terms and
conditions of this license agreement. Read this license agreement carefully.
SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT
1. General. Software is being licensed to the Customer pursuant to the
following terms and conditions, which supplement any purchase or lease
agreement (the "Equipment Agreement") between Customer and
Sensormatic Electronics Corporation ("SEC"). By accepting receipt of,
or by using, such Software, the Customer agrees to be bound by the
terms of this Software License Agreement (the "License Agreement").
The term “Software” means all computer programs, instructions, data
and databases, in any form or on any media, supplied by SEC (or its
suppliers) to Customer and all current and future versions, revisions,
updates, upgrades and new releases thereof. Except as otherwise
provided in this License Agreement, the terms and conditions of the
Equipment Agreement apply to the Software, the related technical and
user manuals ("Documentation") and the license provided herein.
2. License. SEC licenses the Software and the Documentation to
Customer, for the license fee(s) set forth (or included in the product
prices set forth) in the Equipment Agreement and subject to the terms
and conditions of this License Agreement. The license is non-exclusive
and is limited by the terms of this License Agreement. Customer may not
transfer the license except to a party to whom the equipment is
transferred and then only with the written consent of SEC. The Software
and Documentation are being licensed and not sold or leased to
Customer. SEC or its suppliers who have authorized SEC to sublicense
certain of the Software and Documentation retain ownership of the
Software and Documentation. The Software is being licensed for use
only on (i) a single computer (A) owned or leased by Customer and
identified in the Equipment Agreement or (B) otherwise identified in the
Documentation as compatible with the Software, or (ii) a back-up
machine if and so long as such computer becomes temporarily
inoperable.
3. Term. The term of the license is perpetual, except that it will terminate
automatically if Customer sells or otherwise disposes of the Software or
its related equipment or Customer breaches any provision of this License
Agreement or the Equipment Agreement. If the license terminates, SEC
B-2
Operator's Manual
will have the right to take possession of all copies of the Software and
Documentation in the possession of Customer or to require Customer to
destroy all such copies and certify such destruction in writing to SEC.
4. Ownership. Customer agrees and acknowledges that (i) SEC (or its
suppliers) is the sole owner of the Software and Documentation
(including all copies thereof, in whatever form or media, delivered to or
made by Customer) and all patent, copyright and other intellectual
property rights with respect thereto and (ii) the Software and
Documentation constitute valuable trade secrets, confidential
information and proprietary properties of SEC and its suppliers.
Accordingly, Customer agrees that it will have no rights in the Software
or Documentation other than those granted under this License
Agreement and agrees to abide by the restrictions on its use of the
Software and Documentation set forth in Section 5 of this License
Agreement.
5. Use and Copies. Customer may use the Software and Documentation
only in conjunction with the other equipment identified in the Equipment
Agreement, as part of the access control, closed circuit television or
other security system being acquired from SEC and for Customer's
internal business purposes. SEC will furnish the Software to Customer
solely in object code form.
Customer may make up to 2 copies of the Software solely for back-up
and archival purposes. Customer will not remove or modify the
copyright and other proprietary notices and legends of SEC and its
suppliers contained in the Software and Documentation and will
reproduce all such notices and legends on all copies of the Software
made by Customer. Customer may not make copies of the
Documentation, but may obtain additional copies of the Documentation
from SEC at its established rates. Except as permitted above, copying of
the Software and Documentation is forbidden.
Customer will not sell, assign, sublicense or transfer this license or sell
or otherwise transfer the Software or Documentation (or any portion
thereof) to others. Customer will maintain the Software and
Documentation in confidence and not disclose any data or other
Appendix B: Software License Agreement
B-3
information contained in the Software or Documentation to any party,
except for Customer's employees and agents who require access to the
Software for the purposes of Customer's internal business and who use it
in accordance with the terms of this License Agreement. Customer will
not use the Software for the provision of time-sharing services to others.
Customer will not modify the Software or decompile, disassemble or
otherwise reverse engineer the Software and will not have the right to
create derivative works of the Software, including, without limitation,
translated or localized versions of the Software. Customer will not
export or re-export the Software or the Documentation or any portion
thereof without appropriate United States or foreign governmental
licenses.
Customer will implement appropriate measures, such as the requirement
that employees and others permitted access to the Software enter into
appropriate non-disclosure agreements, to satisfy its obligations
hereunder and, generally, will treat the Software and Documentation
with the same degree of care and confidentiality which Customer
provides for its own confidential information. Customer acknowledges
that it may be held legally responsible for any copyright infringement or
trade secret violation that is caused, in whole or in part, by its failure to
abide by the terms of this License Agreement. Since unauthorized
transfer, use or disclosure of the Software and Documentation would
diminish their value to SEC and its suppliers, who would have no
adequate remedy at law if Customer breaches its obligations under this
License Agreement, SEC and its suppliers (who are direct and intended
beneficiaries of this License Agreement) will be entitled to injunctive
relief, in addition to such other remedies and relief that would be
available to them in the event of such a breach.
6. Limited Warranty; Limitation of Liability. The provisions of the
Equipment Agreement respecting maintenance and warranty will not
apply to the Software or the Documentation, unless specifically stated
otherwise and agreed to in writing by both parties. SEC's sole warranties
with respect to the Software and Documentation are that (i) SEC has title
to the Software and Documentation and/or the right to grant Customer
the license set forth in this License Agreement and (ii) the magnetic
media on which the Software is recorded is free from defects in materials
B-4
Operator's Manual
and workmanship under normal use. SEC's sole obligation under this
warranty will be to replace any defective media returned to it free of
charge. The period of this warranty will be 12 months from the date of
the Equipment Agreement (the “Warranty Period”).
EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 6, SEC DISCLAIMS ANY
WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE
SOFTWARE OR THE DOCUMENTATION OR THEIR OPERATION OR
USE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR OF FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW
THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION DOES NOT APPLY IN SUCH STATES. THIS
WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY
ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
SEC AND ITS SUPPLIERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND
FRANCHISEES WILL IN NO EVENT BE LIABLE FOR ANY
INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT
DAMAGES (FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION OR PROFITS
OR OTHERWISE) SUFFERED BY CUSTOMER, ANY OF ITS
EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS OR ANY OTHER PERSON ARISING OUT
OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
SOFTWARE OR THE DOCUMENTATION, OR THE MAINTENANCE
OR SUPPORT THEREOF, EVEN IF THEY HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF
THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SEC neither assumes nor
authorizes any employee, agent or franchisee to assume for SEC any other
liability in connection with the license, use or performance of the Software
or Documentation.
Customer is solely responsible for the selection of the Software to achieve
customer’s intended results, for the conformity of the computer on which the
Software is run to SEC’s specifications or requirements and for the
maintenance of such computer in good working order and repair. SEC’s
suppliers do not warrant the Software, assume any liability regarding the use
of the Software or undertake to provide any maintenance, support or
information regarding the Software.
Appendix B: Software License Agreement
B-5
7. U.S. Government Restricted Rights. The Software and Documentation
are provided with restricted rights. Use, duplication or disclosure by the
U.S. Government is subject to restrictions as set forth in subparagraphs
(c)(1)(ii) of the Rights in Technical Data and Computer Software Clause
of Department of Defense Federal Acquisition Supplement (DFARS)
252.227-7013 or in subparagraph (g)(3)(i) of Federal Acquisition
Regulations (FAR) 52.227-14, Alternate III, as applicable.
8. Indemnity. SEC will defend and hold Customer harmless from any
claim, action, suit or proceeding brought against Customer to the extent
that it is based on a claim that the use of the Software, as such, in
accordance with this License Agreement and not as a result of the
combination thereof with any other article, computer software or
process, constitutes an infringement of any United States patent or
copyright or the violation of any trade secret, if SEC is notified thereof
promptly after its commencement and is given control of the defense
thereof and any negotiations for its settlement and full cooperation by
Customer.
SEC will pay all damages and costs awarded against Customer in
connection with any such claim, except that SEC will not be liable for
any amounts paid under any compromise or settlement made without its
consent. If the Software is either claimed or held to infringe or violate
any patent or copyright, SEC may, at its sole option and expense, and
Customer will permit SEC to, procure for Customer the right to continue
using the Software or modify it so that it becomes non-infringing or
replace it with a non-infringing counterpart. If neither of such
alternatives is available on terms which are reasonable in SEC's
judgment, Customer will return all copies of the Software and
Documentation in the possession of Customer to SEC, at SEC's request,
and SEC will refund a reasonable portion of the license fees paid by
Customer to SEC. This Section 8 sets forth SEC's entire liability
regarding infringement and the like.
